    I wonder if it isn't due to the ubiquity of HE washers now. You have to use HE detergents and in my experience (unfortunately, in hindsight) powdered detergent just doesn't dissolve like it should. I was using my favorite powdered detergent which is actually manufactured here locally, but had to go to their liquid instead as the powder left huge deposits of gross soap slicks on clothing. Especially noticeable on jeans and dark clothing, but I'm sure it was on everything. With the HE, you have to micromanage each load, not overload, make sure there is a mix of weight/size of pieces being washed. But hey, it's efficient somehow.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    That is exactly what caused my dishwasher to take a year and a half off working. Clogged up from pods!

    Dry detergents don't dissolve well for me.
